1 day in January in Beijing with Kids - Suggestions?

Jump to last reply

We will be passing through Beijing on our way back to the States from Thailand in early January. We will have a 9 hour layover and are planning on leaving the airport for the day (yes, we know about the TWoV - its on another post). We would like to see some cool sites that day, but not sure what makes the most sense.
We have 3 kids (ages 11, 11, and 8), and will be coming from Thailand, so we won't exactly have brought a ton of layers with us. I wanted to go to the Great Wall at Mutianyu, but I hear it might be just too cold for that.
Any suggestions to give the kids a quick taste of China, but without needing to pack a whole suitcase of extra luggage? Or assuming we do bring some warm jackets, would would people suggest at that age? Could they still do the toboggan ride at Mutianyu if there is snow on the ground?
